Watch David Walliams’ hilarious new video for “Camp David” – as he says “There’s nothing wrong with being gay”
David Walliams has released an amazing new video to promote his book Camp David (out this Thursday). We don’t think anyone ever promoted a book like this, but we rather like it.
Today in an interview with the Metro, David, once and for all explained that the gay rumours don’t matter to him. Which is a joy, considering most celebrities are usually infuriated by them (I’m looking at you One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson).
“I work with Simon Cowell – a lot of people say he’s gay. He’s not but it will follow him until the day he dies. What’s the point of worrying about it? There’s nothing wrong with being gay, so if people say I am, it doesn’t bother me. I’m not going to sue about that. I’d sue if people said I was a rapist.”
He also said the response to his honest biography has, thankfully, mostly been positive, adding:
“Very positive. Lots of people have said it’s good someone has been so honest about depression, as it affects a lot of people. There’s still a stigma about depression and it’s difficult to talk about, so hopefully people have found it helpful. The only thing that concerns me is when I’m on TV it’s in an effort to make people laugh so I don’t want people to see me as a really sad person – those events are a decade ago.”
He also revealed that he might not stay in comedy forever, continuing:
“I’d like to work with Judi Dench, write a novel for adults and keep doing new things. I could go on doing comedy forever but it would get boring. I didn’t think I’d necessarily be any good [as a judge] on Britain’s Got Talent but it turned out fine. I didn’t know I’d be able to swim 140 miles up the Thames. I like it when there’s no guarantee of a good outcome.”
So with that out of the way, here’s David’s video:
